Description: How Pollock's approach was "more systematic than the chaotic results might suggest... Physicist Richard P. Taylor of the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia, who is also trained as an artist, has taken a mathematical look at Pollock's splatter paintings to try to uncover the secret of their appeal to many viewers... researchers discovered that Pollock's patterns could be characterized as fractals."
